Welcome to WBM Software!
Online Poison Control Patient Management Software Since 1989
& Inventory Control and Inpatient Hospital Pharmacy Solutions since 1987
Founded in 1987 by Terry Carlson, Pharm.D. , WBM Software began by developing business and inventory management software for small businesses. Specialization in barcode-based inventory control systems soon lead to a corporate partnership in the Jewelry industry where both retail and wholesale inventory control systems utilizing barcode technologies were developed. During this time, Terry Carlson also continued his work as a Senior Clinical Pharmacist in the Clinical Pharmacy Services Department at Fresno Community Hospital and as a Toxicology Management Specialist in the Central California Regional Poison Control Center (Now the Fresno/Madera Division of the California Poison Control System).
Prior to 1989, Poison Control Centers across the United States utilized a 2-part form consisting of a written history section and a ‘tear-off’ scantron-type form that required tedious ‘bubbling’ to collect vital statistical information on human and animal poisonings. In 1989, Dotlab© (DOS based online patient management system for Poison Centers) first went online in the Fresno Poison Center. Since that time, Dotlab©, and subsequently Visual Dotlab©, the 32-bit GUI-based upgrade to Dotlab released in 1999, have continued to grow in scope, functionality, sophistication and proven stability across Wide Area Networks (WAN). Twelve years of continuous development and uninterrupted 24 x 7 use in busiest of Poison Centers across the United States and in Canada speaks well for the stability and power of Visual Dotlab©
